As Injury Concern Forces Lionel Messi to Leave Game Midway, Inter Miami Torch Toronto FC 4–0 Leaving Soccer Fans in Hysterics

Moments ago, Inter Miami played their MLS fixture against Toronto. This time, the Herons had their star player, Lionel Messi, back in action after he missed the last game against Atlanta United. As the Argentinian superstar returned to the starting XI, all recharged, he somehow left the field in just half an hour. But his absence didn’t let Inter Miami get distracted from sealing a 4-0 win in today’s match, which left fans in hysterics.

Not only Messi but also Miami’s new left-back signing, Jordi Alba, was substituted a few minutes before the captain. This is definitely not good news for the Florida-based club.

Messi briefly missed the last match for Inter Miami against Atlanta United due to fatigue. Tata Martino also rested Jordi Alba alongside the 36-year-old, allowing both to recharge their energy levels. After boosting themselves, both returned to today’s game. However, despite taking precautions, both are showing signs of injury.

Apparently, within the first half, both Messi and Alba were taken off the pitch. First, Jordi Alba was subbed off by Tata Martino in the 34th minute. The Spanish left-back was replaced by Noah Allen. Subsequently, just three minutes later, the worst happened, as Messi was also subbed off and was replaced by Robert Taylor.

This is indeed a significant setback for Miami. David Beckham’s soccer franchise is already striving for a playoff spot. However, the early departures of both star players may jeopardize their playoff aspirations. Additionally, Miami is in contention to play in the US Open Cup final against the Houston Dynamo. The absence of either star could have implications for their chances in that competition as well.

Jordi Alba being subbed out early is not a good sign. Alba has played phenomenally for Inter Miami.

As the second half commenced, Robert Taylor joined first-goal scorer Facundo Farias on the scoresheet. Messi’s replacement scored in the 54th minute and was assisted by Alba’s replacement, Allen.

In the 73rd minute, Benjamin Cremaschi added a third goal to Miami’s tally, thanks to an assist from Taylor.
